Plan for vaccination all over Skåne. Vaccines effective against more dangerous variants
The vaccines are effective against the variants of the virus that are giving most cause for concern at the moment. Including the alpha variant (the British) which is 60 per cent more dangerous than the original virus, according to Socialstyrelsen.
There is a timetable for how and when younger people in Skåne are to be vaccinated. The plan is on regional commissioner Carl Johan Sonesson's Facebook page. The plan may be subject to alteration.
In the middle of June it is time for the 40-44-year-old age group to book a time for vaccination.
* 45-59-year-olds (born in or before 1976) can book a time now
* People in Skåne aged 40-44 should be able to book a time as from the middle of June.
* The 35-39-year-old age-group should be able to book a time as from the end of June.
* The 30-34-year-old age-group should be able to book a time as from the beginning of July.
